Today, more people are becoming more conscious with what they put in their body, particularly with medicine. Although prescription meds are the norm, not everyone is comfortable with conventional medicine. They are either dissatisfied with the treatment or do not trust the ingredients that come with the medication.
This is where alternative medicine becomes an option.
If you are considering venturing through this route of medication and treatments, you are not alone. Remarkable Medicine is here to educate our readers on complementary and alternative medicine (CAM).
Why We Believe in Alternative Medicine
Here at Remarkable Medicine, we prefer alternative medicine to conventional treatments due to the following reasons:
- We are wary of some methods associated with conventional treatment. We have our reasons, and we know that our reasons do not apply to everyone.
- We believe alternative treatments offer more control and personal autonomy over healthcare decisions.
- In our opinion, alternative medicine is more compatible with our belief, views and values concerning the meaning and nature of health and illness.
Why We Exist
Many people wish to venture into alternative medicine, but do not know where to start. This is where we come in. We offer knowledge concerning CAM through articles and news concerning alternative therapies, natural remedies and healthcare policies.
